obsession with creating a new watergate for president obama. we're throwing some sand in the gears of the gop scandal machine. >>> and angelina jolie's courageous choice. inspiring millions of women and putting a new focus on health care inequality in america. stay with us. oh this is lame, investors could lose tens of thousands of dollars on their 401(k) to hidden fees. is that what you're looking for, like a hidden fee in your giant mom bag? maybe i have them... oh that's right i don't because i rolled my account over to e-trade where... woah. okay... they don't have hidden fees... hey fern. the junk drawer? why would they... is that my gerbil? you said he moved to a tiny farm. that's it, i'm running away. no, no you can't come! [ male announcer ] e-trade. less for us. more for you. >>> have you joined the politics nation conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. today many in our facebook community were outraged over the story of a latino outreach director for the republican party who became a democrat because of what he called the, quote, culture of intolerance in the gop
swift and that romney and democratic president barack obama. she has received support from business health officials, environmental organizations and scientists. she is a woman most worthy of promotion. following her nomination hearing in this committee, she responded to more than a thousand questions that were submitted to her by the republicans, which is unprecedented. she did it in the full spirit of bipartisanship and respect. now i hope we can respect her. the time has come for this committee to vote on this highly qualified nominee and to move gina's nomination to the full senate to begin at the meeting has been delayed for four weeks and now we must move forward and looks as if we are going to do that. so i am most grateful for that. we will bring the epa one step closer getting what it means to accomplish the mission in a common sense bipartisan way. and i would like to call on the senator for his opening statement and again, as soon as we can we will then vote. it looks like senator lautenberg and senator guilherme and are joining us and we are absolutely thrilled to have t
, if they can't get out ahead of thi they're going to lose their voice on immigration, signing up for the health care bill, fiscal fairness, or whatever. thing a perilous political time for president obama. and i think despite efforts the last few days they have been slow to react and slow to appreciate the seriousness of it. >> rose: karen? >> i think what's interesting is these are three very different controversies and they each have their own constituency of the outraged. but the thing they have in common is they all fit into the sortf stoline that the prident's enemies have bn painting about him all along, that this is big government run amok. that the president doesn't care about the restraints of the constitution. that he has contempt for his enemies. and i think that that is what the white house really has to get ahead of here. and unlike the clinton white house, where they essentially had a scandal management team on the premises from day one of that presidency, this president has been sort of blessed by not having these sorts of controversies. so we really are seeing them as al said, k
of representatives. they are debating the president's health care law. and about one hour from now, re their 38th vote to repeal obama care. or is it the 37th? or maybe the 40th? to be perfectly honest, there are have been so many votes, it's almost impossible to keep a tally. the cbo informed paul ryan and the republicans on wednesday they do not have time to score what that repeal would mean because "we anticipate a similar result were we to do so." and yet there were the republicans this morning trotting out the same tired old lines, this time with a side serving of the irs. >> i'm if petition. i'm quite worried about the privacy of medical records. i'm quite worried that your medical records now will be evaluated by the irs. >> will our most personal, sensitive information be used to deny health care? >> joining us now is democratic congressman chris van hollen of maryland. welcome back, sir. it's great to have you with us. >> good to be with you, martin. >> when speaker boehner was asked whether there will be repeal votes in the future, he said this. i'm quoting. "when we have further votes
to blocking conservative groups. that same woman just got a promotion from the obama administration. she is now in charge of administering obamacare. translation, we couldn't trust you of handling our money so we're going to make you in charge of handling health issues. this could be deadly. >> i want to have a life like this $103,000 and a bonus. where can i sign up for this. do a bad job, target americans and then you get a reward. you get to run obamacare and you get money extra for it. this is about as absurd as susan rice becoming the head of national security advisor? [ laughter ] >> eric: show he biased against conservatives prove to me they won't do the same thing in obamacare. >> bob: i would be surprised if this woman has the job later on. if i were in a position to do so given the story and given the fact she was overseeing this issue it would raise so many questions about obamacare it's probably better to put other someplace else. >> eric: someplace else or let her go. good for you. >> dana: i don't think it's about her personally but institution the irs will not be trusted t
the opponents of the obama administration and now they want to be in charge of our health care? give me a break. i don't think so. members, this is your chance, this is your chance to weigh in on the i.r.s. scandal. a vote to repeal is a vote to stop the i.r.s. but voting to keep obamacare is a vote to empower the i.r.s. as the health care police of the united states. the choice is easy. vote to take power away from the i.r.s. and not to give them more. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. levin: i yield two minutes to the gentleman from texas, mr. doggett. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized for two minutes. mr. doggett: thank you. mr. speaker, i rise today in opposition to the patients' rights repeal act. like a broken record, repeating the same old scratchy sad verse, these republicans cannot stop repeating their record of indifference to the health care crisis. they've given up on repeal and replace because all they ever cared about was the repeal part. as the party of no, this year they have not advanced a s
. it ends up creating millions and millions of more jobs. >> do you think that obama care is keeping a lot of businessmen from hiring people? >> i think there's uncertainty about the introduction of the new health care regulations. you end up making people more cautious in terms of hiring. >> but, again, this isn't about how you get rich. it's about the $100 million schwarzman donated to the new york public library. which is harder, making all that money or giving some of it away? >> actually i enjoy both. i like impacting people, giving them the kind of shot i think they deserve in the society we live in. not everybody gets a boost. not everybody gets a mentor. and those of us who are fortunate need to reach out to people and impact them. >> schwarzman says he was never in the running to be a rhodes scholar when he was in school. he says that was part of the reason he wanted to set up his own scholarship program. that's it for today. to all the moms who are watching, especially mine, have a great mother's day and we'll see you next "fox news sunday." ♪ [ male announcer ] the first look
grams. [ sighs ] [ male announcer ] always rich, >>> voting to appeal obama care. again, the scandal lobby, recent controversy, those are two of the hot topics pitched to us today. sara covers health care policy for the washington post. kate covers homes and joanne greel joins was, as well. it's great to have you all here. i want to start out by showing the "new york times" and what they put out today in regard to obama care in this vote coming up. it's the 43rd day that they've devoted time on this issue according to our court. it's in the upper 30s. almost 40 times there that the vote has come up on this. we all remember john boehner said this was the law of the land. >> one of the things that john boehner has said is he has a lot of -- who want to be on the record opposing this law and he's giving them the chance to vote against it. and it's easy to write off over three dozen votes as inconsequential. at the same time, we are polling showing about facilitiers and americans think that congress has repealed the laws. there is a real impact of having these repeated votes again and ag
surrounding his white house for now. however, under stormy skies in atlanta, mr. obama attempted to move the focus off the irs, benghazi, and the associated press. he spoke about the economy and health care in his address to morehouse college. >> my job as prdz is to advocate for policies that generate more opportunity for everybody. policies that strengthen the middle class and give more people the chance to climb their way into the middle class. policies that create more good jobs and reduce poverty and educate more children and give more families the security of health care and protect more of our children from the horrors of gun violence. that's my job. >> so can the president change the focus from the recent scandals and controversies? let's turn to charles blow in new york and errol in washington. writing for the "new york times." good to see you both. >> ross, let me begin with you. the president seems to be moving forward. his approval rating is up even after all these controversies were revealed. so does washington move forward along with, or will critics continue to kind of rai
and percentage of gdp than it was in 2009, the first year of president obama's presidency. this shows that because of better than expected revenue, slower than expected growth in spending, in part because health care costs are slowing, the deficit is going to fall to 2.1% of gdp in 2015. so, we've had a lot of concern that we've discussed for years about the size of the u.s. deficit. it is now coming down pretty rapidly, bill. >> you know, it's symptomatic of our new normal here. we consider $3 gasoline cheap and we think $642 billion deficit is low. >> but as a percentage -- >> you know what i'm saying. >> yes, i do. but the historical standard -- >> john, does that mean that the gdp is expected to shrink -- >> what's that? >> when we talk about these percentages as a function of gdp? what is gdp expected to be? still pretty low historically. >> yes, but i'm talking about the deficit as compared to the size of the gdp and historically, the administrations have tried to keep it in the 3% range over, you know, a period of the past 40 years. it's down to 4 now. according to cbo, it will
overseeing the treasury department's oversight of the president's health care plan, that's raised a lot of questions, among republicans on capitol hill, they say that she, given her previous experience, is exactly the wrong person to be overseeing obama care. your response? >> they're going to do a 30-day top-down review, anyone who did anything wrong is held accountable. >> as far she did not nothing wrong. the president believes that she can continue to fulfill her responsibilities on the health care plans. >> let's get facts first. >> on capitol hill, given the irs' extensive responsibility for overseeing the health care law, this experience with the tax-exempt organizations calls that oversight into question? >> george, i think the question for both republicans and democrats, are we going to come together to solve the problem? i understand that republicans are still very angry that obama care is law. they tried to use this as an excuse to -- to try to repeal obama care. let's actually solve the problem. >> and so, you have no question about the irs' ability to oversee and their resp
. >> but they are not looking at people's medical records. this idea that they will be overseeing the health scare incorrect. -- healthcare is incorrect. it is a narrative that will work with people who want that to be the narrative i think. this is bad for liberalism. when obama came in there already was no trust of the government. it was 17% was the number of people that trusted the historict which is a whose low. the lowest in history. he was coming in already with a heavy lift. >> chris: there was a story in the papers over the weekend that the white house chief of staff dennis mcdonough met with top aides and said i want you to spent no more than 10% of your time on any of the scandals. you have been in the middle of the scandals in the bush white house. how consuming are they. >> good luck. it will consume as much time as it needed. we will have three or four weeks or five or six weeks of hearing and debate back and forth on capitol hill and it will consume time. the narrative of not being able to get things done. it is not just the government cannot get things done. it is president obama can't get th
after reporters, or whether the hhswent too far with the company pay for publicizing health care law, it could be mess, and that is like, watergate summer-like, do you agree? >> i do. i think that washington can't multitask, but maybe president obama is almost relieved he does not have to talk about the economy right now, he can try to cover-up what is happening in the white house right now it is takingocus off one happening in the economy, to be hones-- -- >> he has been liking what has been happening to the economy. >> but, the economy is not doing much better, people still are leaving, workforce, while we can say that unemployment rate has dropped it is because tre are thousands of people still leaving the workforce, every month, tha we can point to. and that does not point to an economy that is starting to thri. neil: phil, a read onhere this es. do you think these are going to be sort of obsessing points good or bad for the summer? >> yeah, i do, i think they will be where they have been front and center, and even the hhs scandal with secretary sebelius calling ceos for cash th
if dayton -- governor day tton sig this thing this week, does this end? or will it be like with health care, they're still trying to repeal obama care. >> i don't think it ends the conversation. i'm not sure there are in republicans in a position to change it anytime soon. you know, the minnesota house is up next year, but the minnesota senate is not. so it would take them another presidential year to try again. and frankly, when what we've seen in the polls on all of this, who knows where the polling will be. who knows where people will be in 2014, in 2016, and in 2020? >> and we don't know that, but we do know the polling is much different than it was in 2002, 2003. look at that state like mine, and it's funny, in our state, we were defining the definition of marriage and that meant marriage between a man and a woman. but if you look at those and where our state has evolved from since then. in 2002, it was a political issue. it was for karl rove and for the rest of them to get all of these republicans out of their houses and to the polls and it worked. >> and look at just the last year. t
. >> thank you. >>> we've got lots more to come, including what president obama today called outrageous. he called it outrageous and called it outrageous twice. that's next. asional have constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yes! one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues... with three strains of good bacteria.

luther king jr. academic magnet high school for health sciences and engineering. it's her second ceremony in as many days. yesterday she was right here in our area giving new graduates a proper sendoff at bowie state university. mrs. obama reminded the new grads about bowie's place in history and about their importance in their new degrees. >> i'm thinking about all the people who took the extra job and toiled and bled and prayed so we could have something better. >> president obama heads to georgia today. he will deliver the commence m address at mohr house college in atlanta. >>> plenty of people are talking about personal experiences the president shared yesterday. during an economic trip to baltimore, he opened up about his own experience growing up without his father around. >> i grew up without a father. i always tell people that as great and heroic a job as moms do, particularly for a family of boys, that's a hard situation. >> the president was talking to a group that promotes families and responsible fatherhood. many people at the event struggled to find jobs so the center for ur
and using private forums and soliciting funds phenomenon the obama re-election campaign. you think she would learn after that. >> neil: you're a hater. so i just want to -- i want to get what the health and human services said. there's a special section that allows the secretary to support and encourage others to support nonprofit organizations working to provide health information and conduct other public health activities. i have no idea what that means. essentially, an agency spokesperson says we did nothing wrong. >> that's what they're saying and i'm not buying it. >> neil: if you have to put out a statement like that in a firefight and it makes no sense. >> that says a light. and i'm looking at the law. and it says, you cannot be doing exactly what she is doing if you're using your professional status and going after private companies, and i have got to believe that she -- again, didn't call up and say, it's kathleen here. me a you can sent some money or -- send some money or can't. the question is, were these companies strong-armed to give the money and -- >> neil: if you're h & r blo
for the 37th time to repeal health care. i'm a voter, part of the public, is it maybe time to move on and get off that at this point? >> again, i'm -- i'm concerned about obama care simply because, donny, you're in business, i've been in business, health care costs continue to go up 20% a year for small, medium-sized businesses. it's not doing anything to bend the curve on health care. i think it's a big concern going forward. i can tell you my district all throughout florida, people are very concerned. their number one issue for small business is affordable and av l available health care and they have no answers. i think this is going to be a huge challenge, government taking on this role of going forward and i think the democrats and probably a lot of people are very concerned about it. >> right now, david gregory, we are showing a kaiser family foundation poll, only 35% of americans have a favorable impression of obama care. roughly the same amount of people who believe the federal government blew up building seven at -- during 9/11. i mean that is a small percentage to support such landm
, and discriminate against those with preexisting conditions. since president obama signed the affordable care act into law, insurance companies can no longer put profits ahead of people. one of the provisions in this bill says that of premiums paid to insurance companies for health care, 80% of those benefits must go to patients. no long, as they did, 50% of the premium goes for salaries and bonn uses and other perfection -- and bone bonuses and other t. insurance companies can no longer discriminate against children with preexisting conditions. they can no longer raise year rates for no reason. they can no longer drop your coverage if you get sick. mr. president, that's what happened. but this week, for the 37th time, house republicans will try to change all that. here are a few of the other benefits already in effect that house republicans would eliminate: in nevada -- mr. president, we're not a heavily populated state like massachusetts or california or new york, but we are getting bigger. we have about 3 million people. in nevada alone, tens of thousands of seniors have saved tens of millions
with the republican base. and it would be an ongoing, perhaps not a 38th vote on the house floor as with health care. but an ongoing continued story line. >> well, look, we've written that there is about a third of the house committees that are right now investigating the obama administration. and that is a big reason why there is going to be some difficulty for the white house in trying to get in front of this stuff. and i think the bigger issue here is what does it do to the second term agenda? immigration reform is the big thing that the president wants to get done. really was the big thing coming in. aside from taxes after his election. and while that is moving along pretty normally, because you have about half the republican party that wants to get that done. there is a potential problem with that. because you know, while talk radio may be talking about irs and benghazi, there is going to be a section that says, look, we can't trust them to implement health care. we can't trust them to implement border security if they can't even run the irs. that's a talking point i think we'll hear a lot of.
got a promotion from the obama administration. she's now in charge of administering obamacare. translation. miss ingram, we couldn't trust you handling our money issues, so we're going to put you in charge of handling our health issues. the optic social security bad enough, but this could be deadly. >> i want to have a life like this and get $103,000 and a bonus. bring it now. b where can ion sign up for this? target americans on american policies and get a reward.et you get to run obamacare and you get money extra for it. i mean, this is about as absurd as susan rice becoming the headc what, of national security advisor? that's the next one. >> show me -- prove me that this whole group proved they're biased against conservatives in the irs. show mere they're not going to do the same thing withves obamacare. >> i would be surprised if thir woman had this job in another month. >> are you calling for her firing? >> i think that wo if i were in. position to do so, given the story and given the fact she was overseeing this issue, that it would be raised so many questions about ob
everybody knows what the irs is. the irs regulating obamacare. so your tax records and now all your health records go to the hated irs. this has to be one of the biggest political losers in history. >> well, even the president said it was outrageous. you know, this kind of -- >> not obama care. >> no. but the misuse of the irs. the irs, whether you like them or not, whatever your position may be, they have to be sackery sank. there has to be some confidence immediately. not some long, drawn-out hearing but a focused investigation by special counsel, free of conflicts, in order to restore the confidence people have. otherwise tax code doesn't work. >> 16,000 irs agents coming. did you know that? >> oh, yeah. >> 16,000. >> you're going to see that on campaign posters and campaign ads. look, republicans have struggled for so long to come up with an argument that makes sense and now they can say the irs is dysfunctional, it's playing politics. >> and they won't be even-handed. you're asking the irs to regulate obamacare, tax hikes, and mandates, which could mean regulating the very people they
's sort of bad news for the obama haters the head of the irs, a bush appointee, and the women ahead of the benghazi scandal? a cheney advisor. >> hum. >> stephanie: we need a health care colon blow this morning. >> like an enema? >> the show needs an enema. >> i said i'm like a high-fiber snack. >> stephanie: i have to many ask jacki questions. in the meantime jacki schechner in the current news center. >> the obama administration making news today. first the associated press revealing that it is the target of a just disdepartment investigation saying the government has collected work and phone records of several associated press bureaus. here is senior vice president kathleen carol. >> they have told us what they are looking for, nor have they explained why we got no prior notice, which our lawyers tell us is not only customary but required. >> it just has a list of who called whom when and for how long they spoke. gary pruitt is calling the secret subpoena on records of some 20 different lines massive and unpress dented intrusion. and then the irs disproporti
vote on repealing the health care law 2010? >> they've really got assessment from the most cnrvative house. obviously, president obama has been reelected if this is his lot and he will not allow repeals to get past his desk. that doesn't mean house republicans don't pick a statement to make it clear to the public to continue to fight this law. >> host: how many times have house republicans try to repeal the law? >> guest: this'll be the 37th 02 repeal a portion of the law. most of them in the last three years, but this'll be the 30 time they've attempted full repeal of the law. >> host: what a republican thing about the health care law they say hurt the economy? >> guest: you know, a lot of things will go into effect early next year on employers to provide coverage or pay penalties and we are to insurance announced this summer or next year. there will likely be increases in rates. they say that's going to hurt the public and that's why they want to continue to put attention on the loss. >> host: you mention all the other times, attempts at repealing the votes on repeal anyway. what a
for the obama care plan today. there is going to continue to be all these implementation markers throughout the next year and there's been problems in implementing the law. so if republicans can season this and say, listen, health care implementation has been a debacle because the federal government is too big because that is the theology of obama, and democrats, that could hurt democrats in 2014. i think that's where republicans are going to try to keep the focus. in doing that, you guys have been talking on the show, they have to resist this urge to say nutty things. in the past when republicans get into this situation, everyone wants to out do themselves or out do their fellow republicans and they say nuttier and nuttier things and it turns what could be a political winner into a political loser because people start to feel sorry for the president or the democrats are going after him. >> and prominent conservatives, jim, have come out and said things like that. charles krauthammer said let's drop the watergate nixon impeachment jail, drop that talk for now until we have more details. if
are beginning to add up to a growing credibility gap between this administration under president obama and the high standard of public service that the american people deserve. and now, thanks to obamacare, the i.r.s. will also be administering parts of the health care law. the i.r.s.'s power will grow as they become responsible for determining whether americans have satisfied the government mandate to have health insurance and whether the government will pay for part of that coverage through refundable tax credits. as noted by the national taxpayer advocate nina olson, obamacare is, and i quote, the most extensive social benefit program the i.r.s. has been asked to implement in recent history, end quote. and, mr. president, as i previously mentioned, this isn't the only obamacare-related scandal that's come to light this week. over the weekend, "the washington post" reported that secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius has been soliciting donations from health care executives to fund left-leaning organizations that are trying to work hand in hand with h.h.s. to enroll
